August weddings have a special place in my heart, probably because my own wedding was in August. O & C's wedding was absolutely perfect! Some aspects that I loved about the day:
- The day itself. It was a warm day and it was also one of the first days in weeks where BC saw blue skies. Due to insane forest fires in Northern BC, we were covered in a hazy smoke for weeks on end. Given that the wedding was up on Burnaby Mountain, I was sad at the ceremony rehearsal to find that I couldn't see the beautiful view that the mountain offers. Thankfully, rain came the day before the wedding and brought clear, blue skies for the wedding day. And the view was STUNNING!
- The theatrics. The best man pretended to forget the wedding rings at the ceremony, making everyone believe that the rings were missing. Then he "remembered" that the rings were attached to the ring-dog's collar, which lead to lots of relieved laughter. The bride and groom also made a hilarious video of themselves acting out how they met. It had everyone endlessly entertained (myself included).
- The gratefulness. The bride and groom were so thankful for their guests, their family, and for each other. The love that they shared for their parents and friends was amazing to bear witness to.
